Edge Caching Technology
Learn about Filebase's edge caching technology.
All Filebase customers, both free and paid, have access to our Filebase Edge Caching Technology. This technology improves upload and download requests, making them faster than if you were to access the same files directly from decentralized networks.
Filebase provides access to decentralized storage through its unique edge platform. Data retrieval fees are charged by these storage networks. Consequently, Filebase must charge customers for outbound bandwidth when downloads are performed.
However, it is our goal at Filebase to reduce these charges. This is why we deploy an aggressive caching layer at our edge locations. If an object is accessed frequently or recently, then it will be cached in the edge layer for quicker access. If data is cached on our edge, you won't be asked to pay for bandwidth consumed.
If an object is cached, the following will be true:
  • The Filebase customer is not charged for egress (bandwidth).
  • The download performance is significantly increased.
  • If the object is frequently accessed, it will remain active in the cache for 7 days.
  • If an edge node is busy, it is possible for objects that have gone dormant to be evicted.
  • The x-cache-status HTTP header will return a value of HIT. Objects that are not cached will return MISS.
